Those who enjoy Dark Chambers will appreciate being able to play level after level after level (they just keep going!) However, most gamers will eventually tire of this game. More variety and features could have made this into an all time great. As it is, Dark Chambers can just fall into line with the other failed Gauntlet imitators.
The Video Game Critic (Sep 09, 1999)
Dark Chambers is much like Gauntlet, only slower and less exciting. The graphics feature detailed characters and large dungeons. Unfortunately, there isn't much variety in the 26 levels; they are all brick labyrinths of rooms and hallways. Your character moves slowly through the scrolling dungeons. The game requires you to do a lot of backtracking which is boring and time-consuming. The left joystick button shoots and the right button allows you to use smart bombs. When you shoot a monster, he transforms into a weaker monster. These monsters aren't particularly aggressive. They look as bored as you do playing this game.
